Which is yours? I think mine has to be the neo-classic armor Iron Man wore after the first armor wars. When I started reading the series (during the John Byrne/John Romita Jr. run) that was his armor, so it formed my first impression of the character and I've loved it ever since. I also really like the silver centurion armor (despite how dated it looks now), the post-extremis armor, and the ablative armor he wore just prior to that.
The problem with specific armors is that different artists had their own take on the armor and there are many discrepencies between issues and armor changes.
Despite this, a couple of my favorites would have to be the Hypervelocity armor, War Machine, Extremis and the Hulk Buster MK II from WWH.
Why did you like Silver Centurion? It has to be my least favorite mostly because it ditches the gold/red colors.
It's funny that you dislike that armor because it doesn't have gold (although it still had red), yet you like the war machine armor which doesn't have either of those two traditional colors. I do agree about the importance of the color scheme however, but I still liked the design of the silver centurion armor nonetheless. I think it fit that time in the 80's really well, even if it looks dated now.
You raise a good point about the differences in the depiction of armors by different artists, but I think that was less of an issue in the past than it has been lately.

Probably to distinguish Iron Man from War Machine and give it a cold, steely appearence as opposed to something bright and colorful.
